JJTY HALL SITE AGAIN
.    EGATION ATTENDS MEETING
OF CITY COUNCIL.
lid. Lynch's Committee Reports
On Advantages of Fulton Street
for Temporary Site, Conceding
Those of Market for Permanency
I
The city council met again last even-
tl all the aldermen being present,
d Messrs Weston and Westenhaver
ttended as  a  delegation   from   those
igning the petition in favor of Market
lace instead of Fulton street as the
te of the temporary city hall. Mayor
tork announced that if the gentlemen
esired to be heard before the council
ie aldermen would be pleased to confer any argument they might present.
Aid. Pattullo suggested that the re-
ort ol the committee on Streets, Works
nd Property, be first read. Aid. Lynch
reduced the report, which was read by
he city clerk as follows:
"In accordance with a resolution of
council at yesterday's meeting,
|our committee on Streets, Works and
Property begs to report on the petition
[yesterday's date from Messrs. Westen-
[aver Brothers and other citizens con-
eroing the site for a city hall, as follows
The petitioners recommend for contention a site on Block 15 of section
on the Market square, and we are
stormed that the Board of Trade
lad been in communication with the
provincial Government in order to
scertain if, and on what terms, the site
Md be acquired, but that no reply
iad yet been received. The government
gent has kindly undertaken to find
ut whether the government has taken
Hy action in the matter.
We believe that the site in question
ossesses architectural possibilities which
re much superior to those of the Fulton
treet site, but that these advantages
annot offset the many solid reasons
�� adhering to the latter site at the
'resent time.
It is particularly important in the
litial stages of municipal government
hat the offices should be centrally lowed with regard to the business area,
present occupied, and that they should
'available for use us soon as practicable.
" Wieve that the Fulton street site
ulfills these conditions and that negations regarding it, being now in
"ogress with the provincial government,
�� Grand Trunk Pacific and the arehi-
practialng in Prince Rupert, it
���uld seriously hinder the organization
the City departments to withdraw
pi these negotiations at their present
page and to commence fresh ones.
We believe also, the Market square
���e t0 be ��" rwl<. requiring a more ex-
building   for   the   accomoda-
JJJt m be "rovided on Fulton
recommend, however, that the
i��'<;�� 01 the Board of Trade commenced
inqmrmg into the Market square
P ""''I be continued by the council,
r�� thai such action should not exclude
'���ons.deration of other possible
lombtni   U V"">W t0 |)ermanent "ty hall
sideration, but should not exclude the
consideration of other sites.. The Fulton
street site was the most convenient at
the present and the building proposed
to be erected, when they got a permanent
city hall later on, could be used as a
fire  hall or other municipal purposes.
Mr. Westenhaver, upon being asked
if he desired to speak on the subject,
said, after the report expressing the views
of the committee, he did not believe he
had any remarks to make! He thought
the reasons offered for selecting Fultyn
street site were good ones, but he was
very much in favour of the other location. However, he did not wish to go
further into the matter, seeing the
committee had taken the stand they had.
Aid. Pattullo moved that the report
be received, and Aid. Lynch observed
that the site proposed by the delegation was a grand one, and far better than
the Fulton street site; but it did not
present the advantages of Fulton street
site at the present time. For a permanent
city hall he did not believe the site proposed by the gentlemen could be beaten.
Aid. Mobley seconded the motion
that the report be received, and it was
carried.

Real Estate Active.
A real estate man stated to the Optimist yesterday, in reply to the question,
"How's business?" "We have done as
much business since last Friday as we
have any week since we opened up.
There has been something doing every
day."   No further comment is required.

DANGEROUS   BONFIRES.
A meeting of the Police Commission
was held yesterday afternoon at two
o'clock when the commission was organized. Mayor Stork was elected chairman, J. Charles Halsey, secretary and
Aid. F. W. Mobley is the other member.
The board decided to take over the
city police at once and they opined
and considered a large number of applications . There were none suitable
for the chief's office and it was decided
to advertise for an officer to head the
department. Four police constables
were appointed as follows:- S. M. Calkins, Thomas Regan, R. McLean and
E. C. Latrace. These were sworn in
this morning.
For the time being the commissioners
headquarters will be in the city hall and
until a city police station, with cells,
is erected, the prisoners will be kept and
boarded in the provincial government
jail.
NEW BOAT FOR SKEENA
BIG  CROWD TO WELCOME THE
STEAMER   INLANDER.
Left At Four O'clock This Morning
on Her First Tript to Hazelton,
With a Big Load of Freight.
That was Waiting for Her.
Citizen   Urges   That Council   Take
Immediate Steps to Stop Them.
A prominent citizen drew the attention of the Optimist to the dangerous
and apparently reckless practice of
lighting bon fires and allowing them to
burn unwatched in the most thickly
populated portions of the city. This
citizen referred particularly to a big
fire that was started and left blazing
just alongside of his new block. The prac-
ice is general all through the central
part of the city, and it is apparent that
the council must take steps at once to
stop it. There is no law now governing
this and the people will go to no trouble
or expense without the law. It is hard
enough now, in fact it is impossible
to get insurance without adding the
hazards of bonfires in every nook and
corner. The question is a most serious
one and requires prompt attention.
Heavy Fall of Stocks.
New York, May 2nd.���(Special)���
Attorney General Wickersham's injunction forbidding the railroads to increase their freight rates caused a heavy
fall of stocks on the market this morning.
But by some this is regarded as a
dodge on the partof Wall street to bluff
the government.
In all the bravery of spotless paint
the new river steamer Inlander put
into her home port, Prince Rupert, at
a quarter past five yesterday afternoon.
In a few moments there was a large
crowd on the dock demonstrating their
interest in this bran new steamer, built
and owned by local merchants. Until
quite a late hour there was a continuous procession through the vessel,
and nothing but admiration was expressed at the good taste displayed in her
fittings and furnishings, and the neat,
cosy   air   about   everything.
About forty can be comfortably
seated in the two dining saloons, and
most of the comfortably furnished
state-rooms enter directly into the
dining saloon. There is an observation parlor forward, upholstered in
crimson plush, and a smoking room.
The whole of the appurtenances are
of the most modern character, and the
new boat is bound to be the favorite
passenger carrier on the river route.
It is claimed that she will also prove to
be the fastest of any of the steamers
regularly plying those waters, which is
a consideration' for the wholesale merchants shipping freight, as well as for
those making trips on her to river points.
The Inlander is one hundred and
forty-five feet long and twenty-eight
beam. She is licensed to carry one hundred and seventy-five passengers and has
berth accomodations for thirty six.
Her tonnage is 339.60. She is mostly
owned by Prince Rupert and Skeena
River people and operated by them
under the corporation name of the
Prince Rupert-Skeena Transportation
Company, Limited, hence the general
interest taken in her by the whole population of the city.
Captain J. P. Bucey, formerly master
of the Hudson Bay steamer Hazelton,
is   in command and he says that for a
new boat with new machinery, coming
straight off the ways, he was quite
surprised at the smooth and easy way
in which she found herself and handled.
They started from Victoria on May 26th
and encountered some rather nasty
weather coming up in which the new'
vessel carried herself splendidly. Arriving at Port Essington Tuesday afternoon she was taken to Balmoral Cannery, where her boilers were cleaned and
she went under a through overhauling
to make her fit to meet every emergency
of the busy season expected.
Captain Bucey, who is the favorite
river steamer commander ot the north,
stated that he had no shadow of a
doubt that the Inlander will prove the
speediest boat on the river and the
easiest to handle. He is assisted by the
following staff of officers, most of whom
are well and favorably known in the
city:
First Officer. James Cunningham.
Chief   Engineer, Robert   Ryder.
Second Engineer,   E. Clark.
Purser, W. J. O'Neil.
Steward, J. Doyne.
Freight clerk, F. Waller.
��� With a few joyous toots of her siren
the Inlander pulled out on her first
trip shortly after four o'clock this morn
ing. She took on the full cargo of
freight that had been awaiting her
arrival and the following passengers:
Mr. and Mrs. E. E. Charleson and
family, R. S. Sargeant, George Cunningham, George Frizzell, F. E. Mitchell,
Mr. and Mrs. Marsh English.
CITY CLERK APPOINTED.
STAMPEDE FOR IDITAROD
GREATEST RUSH FROM SEATTLE
SINCE KLONDYKE DISCOVERY.
E.  A.  Woods  Gets  The  Plum���He
Was Stenogra pher For Mr. Kays
of the G. T. P.
The six applications for the position
of city clerk were acted upon by the city
council last night. A ballot was taken
and resulted in favor of the application
of E. A. Woods, and that gentleman was
appointed.
All The Steamships Densely Crowded
Rich Claims Guarded Night and
Day���Many Leaving Prince Rupert  For   New  Diggings.
(Special to the Optimist.)
Seattle, June 2.���This city is experiencing the greate t rush north that has
occurred since the news came of the discovery of gold in the Yukon territory,
and similar stories are told of the fabulous richness of the Iditarod placers
as was told of the Klondyke in its early
days. Pans running from five to fifty
dollars are said on the best of authority
to be common in the new camp, and the
dumps are declared to be so rich in
dust that they are guarded night and
day. 6Thousands are eager to go from
here but cannot secure transportation,
and all the vailable boats from other point
are being pressed into the Alaska trade.
Outfitters are as busy and are reaping
as rich a harvest as they were in 1897
and 1898. Nurnters of schemes are
being put on theMnarke having the
Iditarod country as the objective point.
It is learned here from Cordova that
there has been a great exodus from that
point to the new gold camp. Three hundred men have left here within the week,
which has reduced the floating population to the great satisfaction of the
residents.as the constant advertising
for men to work on the railroad had led
to a greater influx than there was employment for. Some of the leading
tradesmen, and several of th mechanics
employed on the railway have also
joined in the rush.
Mr. Woods is an Englishman and a
native of Grantham. For two years
he was stenographer and clerk to J. H.
Bacon, G. T. P. Harbor Engineer.
He left that position in April of last year
and joined Mr. Hays as stenographer
and clerk, when the G. T. P. Town and
Development Co's office was started
here. He remained in that position
until last October when he left and returned to England to be married.
He and his bride arrived in Prince Rupert
on April 26th last and are residing in
a cottage on Fraser street near Sixth.
Mr. Hays, in speaking of the appointment stated that he felt confident that
Mr. Woods would make a good and
efficient clerk and he was glad he received the appointment.
STILL ROASTING TEDDY.
Criticism  Will  Probably  Be  Hotter
After   He   Leaves   Country.
(Special to the Optimist.)
London, May 2.���The newspapers
continue to roast Colonel Roosevelt
for his references to British rule in
Egypt made in the Mansion House
speech, but the worst criticism is probably being reserved until he ceases to
be a guest of the country. His sti ictui es
upon the British government will certainly make a great difference in the
character of the farewells tendered to
him.
Lord Strathcona entertained Roosevelt at dinner last night and a brilliant
reception followed which was attended
by many leading Canadians, including
Hon. Frank Oliver, minister of the
interior.
Prince Rupert has quite a few who are
bitten by the Iditarod bug, principally among the pion eers of the north
who have taken up their permanent
residence here. Some are packing up,
others are anxiously waiting for mail from
friends in the interior upon whose word
they can rely. The letters that have
reached here recently bear out the published statements of the richness of the
country. Some are apt to still regard
it as a stampede gotten up by the transportation comanies, just as they did at
the time of the Klondyke rush, but
there seems to be no doubt that the Iditarod diggings are proving to be very
rich and that it will be a great camp th
summer.
NEW  ALBERTA  CABINET.
Sifton Announces Names of the New
Government.
(Special to the Optimist.)
Edmonton, May 2.���The members
of the Sifton cabinet were announced
by the premier this morning. Mr. Sifton himself is to be president of council,
provincial treasuier and minister of
public works, Mitchell attorney-general and minister of education, McLean
provincial secretary and Marshall minister of agriculture.
Immense Capital for   Canada.
London, May 28.���It is understood
that a prominent banker of Montreal
has been for some time working in
an endeavor to interest French bankers
and capitalists in Canada, with the result that a group of French bankers
and capitalists is ready to invest one
million pounds sterling in pny (roup
of sound Canadian schcrr. .; that r. ight
be placed before them. .-������

TREATY - MAKING POWERS.
Sir Edward Grey's and Lord Ripon'i
Respective Views.
London, May 26.���A parliamentary
white paper has been issued dealing
with colonial treaty-making power,
containing correspondence between the
home government and those of the
overseas states.
Lord Ripon in 1895, in connection
with speeches made at the conference
of trade relations within the empire,
held at Ottawa, sent a circular despatch to the governments of the self-
governing colonies laying down the
principle that a foreign government
can only be approached through the
British representative at the court of
that power; that to give the colonies
the power of negotiating treaties for
themselves without reference to his
majesty's government would be to give
them international status as separate
sovereign states, which would be equivalent to breaking up the empire; but
it would be desirable generally that
the British ambassador who was conducting such negotiations should have
the assistance of a delegate from the
colonial government to act as second
plenipotentiary or in subordinate capacity.
On July 4, 1907, Sir Edward Grey,
when informing the British ambassador in Paris of the desire of the Canadian government to open negotiations
with the French government for a new
commercial convention, recalled the
above despatch to Lord Ripon, and
added: "I do not, however, think it
necessary to adhere in the present case
to the strict letter of this regulation,
the object whereof was to secure the
negotiations should not be entered into
or carried through by a colony unknown
to or independently of his majesty's
government. The selection of a negotiator is principally a matter of convenience and in the present circumstances  it   would  obviously  be  more
practical that these negotiations should
be left to Sir Wilfrid Laurier and the
Canadian Minister of Finance, who will
doubtless keep you informed of their
progress. If the negotiations are
brought to a conclusion in Paris you
should sign the agreement jointly with
the Canadian negotiator, who will be
given full powers for that purpose."
In a subsequent despatch to the ambassador, Sir Edward Grey added that
in the event of the Canadian delegates
desiring to make or accept any verbal
alterations either in the English or
French text "you are authorized to
agree thereto without reference to
me."

To Represent Canada.
Ottawa, May 28.���A prominent local
officer of the Dominion trades and labor
congress says that in the event of the
British labor men accepting the offer of
the Dominion congress to provide
for labor candidates in Britain, a Canadian laborite will be selected to contest
a seat in the imperial parliament.
It is believed that it would be in the
interest of Canadian labor to have representatives in the British parliament
to discuss immigration and other matters affecting labor in Canada.
A slice of bacon cooked with spinach
or other greens gives a delightful seasoning.
LEMBERG IS THE WINNER
NEAL GOW DID NOT EVEN GET A
PLACE.
Favorite Won Easily with Greenback
Second; O'Malley Third.���Attendance at Great Race Small Owing
to Court Mourning.
(Special to the Optimist)
London, June 1���Lemberg went to the
wire a first favorite with Neil Gow close
up in the betting. The favorite won
easily, with Greenback second and
O'Malley a good third. Neal Gow was
not even placed and an immense amount
of money changed hands for this reason.
The attendance fell far below the average
of previous Derby days, which is attributed to the effect of the general court
mourning.
Deferment   and    Interment.
"Tomorrow,"said the languid man,
"I'll have my life insured, I guess; I
know it is the safest plan, to save my
children from distress." And when
the morrow came around, they placed
him gently in a box; at break of morning
he was found as dead as Julius Caesar's
ox. His widow now is scrubbing floors,
and washing shirts, and splitting wood,
and doing fifty other chores, that she may
rear her wailing brood. "Tomorrow."
said the careless jay, "I'll take an hour,
and make my will; and then, if I should
pass away, the wife and kids will know
no ill." The morrow came, serene and
nice, the weather mild, with signs of rain;
the careless jay was placed on ice,-
embalming fluid in his brain. Alas, alas,
poor careless jay! The lawyers got his
pile of cash; his wife is toiling night and
day, to keep the kids in clothes and hash.
To-morrow is the abused walk avoided by
the circumspect. Tomorrow is the fatal
rock on which a million ships are wrecked.

KNELL     SOUNDED    BY     POLICE
COMMISSIONERS TO-DAY.
Operators given just 24 Hours to
Close their Bars and Cease the
Illegal Selling of Liquor.���Police
will then get Busy.
The Board of Police Commissioners
Bounded the knell of the blind pigs in
Princ'e Rupert. All such establishments
must be closed within 24 hours of the
date of this issue. In other words they
can soil only to-night and to-morrow for
to-morrow night the four newly appointed police constables of the City will be
on the trail of the whiskey dives and will
prosecute every one to the limit. This
is the last call from the police commissioners. No excuses will be accepted.
The police constables have received
their instructions and the chief item in
those is that the blind pigs must go at
once. If they do not get out of business
the police are to help them out.
Mayor Stork, chairman of the
commission, has a formal notice published
in this issue to the blind pigs and others
selling liquor  illegally.
Hot Argument About Lacrosse.
There promises to be a hot argument
at the coast this year for the honor
of holding the Minto cup, and the
games between the old lacrosse rivals,
Vancouver and Westminster, should be
even more interesting than the battle
for the world championship between
Montreal and the Salmon Bellies at the
coast city in July. The Vancouver all
star team, which has been collected
from all over Canada by Con Jones, in
an effort to beat the present holders
of the coveted cup, showed what can be
expected of it this summer, when they
trimmed the champions five goals to
two in Vancouver in an exibition game.���

WHILE GOING ALONG.
It's all right to save up for a rainy day
And   salt   all   the   shekels    we   can;
This advice has been spread before each
little   head
Since  ever existence  began.
It is well to look out for  number one.
And keep on the right side of wrong;
Bur we mustn't neglect, as some do, I
suspect,
To enjoy left in going along.
We mustn't deny all the comforts we'd
like,
For tlie sake of the  far by and by;
If we don't have some fun while still on
the run,
We   certainly   can't   when   we   die,
So let's not be wasteful, or spend too
much time
In   riotous   living   and   song,
But let's not be small and deny ourselves
all,
But   have   some   fun   going   along.

Aid. Lynch's Frontage Tax System
And Clearing Off The Bluff
At Third and Seventh Again
Discussed   By   the   Council.
THREW BEAN POT AT KING.
Belgium's Ruler Has Narrow Escape
At Grand Review.
(Special   to   the   Optimist.)
Berlin,    May   2.���While   the   great
review   for   the   distinguished   visitors
was   progressing   yesterday,   a   Polish I
Jew threw  a  bean  pot  at  the group j
The question of cutting down the
bluff on Third avenue and Seventh
street so that Mr. Hyde can proceed
with the erection of a concrete block
at the corner was again brought up at
the council meeting held last night, Aid.
Hilditch asking why the work could
not be done at once so that Mr. Hyde
could proceed. He would like to know
what the engineer thought on the subject.
City engineer Clements said he would
have to take a look over the place indicated before he was able to answer.
Aid. Pattullo said that it was most
important that before any such' work
was undertaken the council should first
definitely decide what work should be
done under general assessment and what
under city improvement, otherwise they
would find themselves in a constant
muddle.
Aid. Mobley was of the same opinion
and did not see how they could proceed
until they had the report of Mr. Clements
dealing with the whole city.
Aid. Lynch did not see why, as this
work was pressing, it should not be
done out of the general fund so far as
the street was concerned, and the remainder met by a frontage tax.
Aid. Mclntyre said what was usually
surrounding the German emperor. The I understood by a frontage tax merely
missile flew between the heads of the' applied to making roads and laying
crown prince and the King of Belgium, j down sidewalks, and when it came to
the latter's nose having a narrow escape. ] removing a bluff from a property it
It truck a policeman square in the face, was another thing. Aid. Lynch had said
knocking him down. Imitation bombs i fully fifty per cent of the property owners
scared a number of the foreign attaches j were willing to pay this tax, and with
and riotous proceedings threatened for! ten year debentures it would not press
a time. The Jew was arrested and has t0�� heavily. But it must be remembered I
been  declared  insane. j that a number of property owners were
non-resident, and they might not be so
willing but prefer to wait until others
did and paid for the work.. As Aid. i
Mobley had observed, they should go
into this matter scientifically and know
exactly what they were doing. As far
as Mr. Hyde was concerned he might
defer the building for another year, as
the excavation would cost more than he '
at first thought it would. He himself
was really hoping the grade would be
changed at this point, as it would make |
it easier on the city and or. the property
holders. He did not think the city
grades were anything like what they
should be and hoped some of them would
be changed.
It   was   remarked   that   Mr.   Hyde
thought of deferring building for another
year, as it was believed that there was
six thousand feet of rock to be excavated i
and that this, at the rate of $2 per foot,
would entail an expenditure of $G,000.
Aid, Pattullo again insisted they must
first have a general comprehensive plan
to work upon before undertaking any of
such work, otherwise there would be a i
general scramble for improvements, first
come first served, and there would be |
nothing left for the other fellow.
Aid Lynch said they could not discuss the matter intelligently before they
had the report of the engineer, but when
they had that, and the people knew
what the exact cost to them would be,
they would not be so badly scared after
all.

How Sutherland   Is Tired.
Douglas Sutherland, the announcement
of whose leaving the employ of the
C. P. R., to go into business for himself
appeared in yesterdzy's Optimist, had
a kick coming this morning. In his
genial way he blurted out as soon as he
met the Optimist man:
"I suppose you thought it sarcastic
to say I was tired of working for a big
salary? No? Well, some of my friends
thought so and they have been joshing
me about it. I am not tired of working
ofr a big salary, nor tired of working for
the big company which has treated me
so well for so many years; But I am tired
of working for the other fellow and when
I saw a chance of working or myself I?
took it."

CENTRE ST. THE    PKINCE    RUPERT   OPTIMIST
REPAIR OF CENTRE STREET.
Proposition   to   Plank    the    Whole
Over  Present   Planking.
Mderman Hilditch reported to the
Wty council last night that the city
bad a man taking up the rotted planks
on Centre street and replacing them
with new ones, but the committee found
the condition of the street to be very bad
and us so much of this kind of work was
required it would be well to know in
advance of further work what the Grand
Trunk would do in the matter.
Md. Barrow said the understanding
seemed to be that the  Grand Trunk
would supply the planks and the ity was
to put them in.   Beatty had been haul-
��� ing planks for this purpose under the
j direction of the Grand Trunk, and it
ws expected that when the teamster
hauled  them   the   council  would   put
' them in.
The Mayor said he had told Mr.
Mehan that the teamsters should put
them in, but in the event of the teamsters neglecting to do so the city would.
As the planks were all piled up on the
street the committee could go ahead and
put them in.
Aid. Lynch thought it would be much
better to replank the whole roadway
| over the present one, as this course
would not cost more than twenty-five
per cent more and would pay in point of
| durance, the present old planking forming a good foundation for the new and
causing the latter to wear longer.
The Mayor thought it inadvisable
to go to that extra expense immediately
as there might be changes in the street
itself. Mr. Mehan said he took up the
matter with Mr. Chamberlain when
that gentleman was here recently, the
latter saying that the company's plans
were not yet completed but he would
advise Mr. Mehan on the subject in a
couple of weeks. As these plans might
contain changes in the course of the
j street, his worship thought the present
[ work of simply patching up the street
had better continue.   It was so ordered.
Council to Take Trip.
The question of the present supply
of city water came up last night and that
of the rates to be charged for it. Aid.
Pattullo said the city engineer was
engaged in the preparation of an elaborate report on the subject, one that
would give every information regarding
the present supply and also the rates
Paid for a similar water service in other

cities. He thought it would be well
to wait until this report was laid before
the council before taking up the subject.
The mayor suggested that in the meantime it would be well for the members
of the council to take a trip to the intake and look over the whole situation
on the ground. He proposed going this
afternoon, starting at two o'clock, and
would be glad to have any aldermen
who could make it convenient to go
along.

Prince Rupert, B. C.
Prince Rupert is attracting capital
and business men from all over the country, and although a great many stores
are being erected it is very difficult
for a newcomer to get a store when he
arrives. J. S. Gray & Son have
arrived from Montreal a couple of weeks
ago and after considerable trouble finally arranged with Koffman's music
store to get sufficient floor space to
open up a jewellery store and optician s
parlor. They have got their stock in and
will open for business to-day. Mr. Gray,
sr., will have charge of the jewellery
end. He is a man of wide exper ience and
was, until he came here, manager of
Richard Hemsley's watch department in
Montreal. He is thoroughly qualified
to do all kinds of watch and jewellery
repairing. The new firm will carry a full
line of jewellery and of Hemsley's
enamel goods. A. G. Gray is a graduate
of the Canadian Optical Institute and
before coming to Prince Rupert was
associated with Dr. Fox, Montreal's
leading optician. He is well qualified
to do all kinds of optical work, and there
is no doubt but that the new firm will
get a large share of the business here and
of the new business constantly coming

CHARITY or
BUSINESS
���wych?���
THE germ of both Life and
Fire Insurance had its rise in
the custom of taking up a collection for the stricken family. We
all chipped in in the hope and
expectation that if we were
snuffed out by either sickness or
accident, the neighbors would do
as much for us. Life insurance
avoids the uncertainty of leaving
things to neighbors. It is a business plan, founded on laws of
mathematics and sound economy,
to provide for those dependent on
us in case of death.
Life insurance is no longer a
charity, or quasialtruism, any
more than fire insurance is. Life
insurance is a duty and a privilege. To eliminate the distressing results of death, through insurance, payable to business
partners, wife, or children, seems
but common prudence.
Lord Nelson in his will left his
wife and daughter "to the tender
care of the British Nation, to
which I have given my life."
And the wife and daughter���
gravitated to the Poor House;
for what is everybody's business
is nobody's business.
Don't leave your loved ones to
the care of the public or the
neighbors. The neighbors may
have troubles of their own.
Cut out the risk and worry by
insuring in the
Sun Life of Canada
The cost is nominal; the results
phenomenal.
Let us talk the matter over
with you.

VERDICT OF ACQUITTAL IN COAL
CREEK CASE.
Prisoners    at    Once     Released    on
Application of Their
Counsel.
Fernie, May 30.���The celebrated
Coal Creek holdup case was concluded
Saturday afternoon w;hen the jury
brought in a verdict of not guilty at
4 o'clock. W. A. Macdonald, K.C., the
crown prosecutor, addressed the jury
at 10 o'clock and had finished when
the court was adjourned shortly before   1   o'clock.
The judge's charge to the jury com-
,menced at 2 o'clock and lasted half
an hour, when the jury retired. They
were out about an hour when they
brought in the above verdict. There
was a clapping of hands when the
verdict was announced, which was
quickly suppressed by the court officials.
The prisoners were at once released
on the application of their counsel,
W. R. Ross, K. C.i and received the
congratulations of their friends. The
two Belangers who turned King's evidence will probably come up for sentence today.
Refuses to Take Oath.
Ottawa, May 28. ��� Considerable
comment has been caused in the civil
service by the refusal of an officer of
one of the departments to take the oath
of allegiance to King George V. It
seems that when the other employees
presented themselves this one abstained
from going to the room where the
clerk of the privy council was administering the oath. The remedy will be in
his salary being stopped by the auditor-
general. The reason assigned is that
the clerk took the stand that the oath
is similar to the coronation oath in its
reference to Roman Catholics, which
is not at all the case.
Engineer Clements presented a blue
print of the proposed site for the city's
electric light plant and wharf on the
water front. He pointed out' the difficulties that may be experienced in
securing an approach suitable for heavy
traffic on account of a couple of overhead bridges to be constructed by the
G. T. P. The aldermen went into that
phase of the matter and an effort w 111
be made to overcome the obstacles.
The engineer also drew attention to
the fact that the city had only 200 feet
frontage.and they might just as well
get 400 feet as it will be needed and wil
be more easily secured now than later.
The aldermen will also take this matter
up and will probably visit the proposed
site with the enginher. Engineer
Clements is to prepare a sketch for
400 feet at once.

Geo. B. Howard Co.
"Father and the Boys" will be the
opening comedy of the Howard Company
Monday night. Briefly the story tells
of the Morewoods whi have a brokerage
office in New York which by the
way of the tastes of the sons is half a
tea parlor and half a gymnasium.
Morewood pater wants his sons to settle
down and marry the girls of his choice.
They want him to "settle up", occassi-
only for them and to enter a little more
actively into the social arena. On the
advice of the family lawyer, and with the
assistance of a breezy Western girl, he
does so, to the astonishment and consternation of nearly every one of them.
All   ends  happily.
Gifted with a face from whose expression springs the very spirit of drollery,
and a manner of saying witty and humorous things that makes them take on a
double amount of fun for his hearers, it
is little wonder that Mr. Howard has
achieved the satisfactory reputation
which he now enjoys.

New York, May 23.���Oliver Spitzer, a
man whose conscience hurt him, came
back to New York today like a spectre
from the grave and with a pardon from
the president in his pocket gave testi- [
mony at the trial of Chas. R. Heike, I
secretary - treasurer   of   the   American i
Sugar   Refining   company,   who,   with
five subordinates, is charged with com-1
spiracy to defraud the government in
underweight of sugar imports.   Spitzer, j
as   superintendent   of   the   company's
Williamsburg    (Brooklyn)    docks,   got
two years for his participation in the
frauds, but he was quietly pardoned by
the president last Thursday after sev-
ving only three months and having made
full  confession.     From now on he will
aid the government in its attempt to
convict his former associates.
Sptizer's story on the stand today
did not directly connect Heike with
frauds, but his confession resulted
in one new arrest tonight. James O.
Brezezinski, formerly an employee of
the treasury department and now a
private detective, was locked in the
Tombs charged with perjury. Spitzer
confessed that he attempted to bribe
Brezezinski to conceal the frauds and
the latter is alleged to have denied this
before a federal grand jury.
Spitzer told an amazing story on the
stand today under direct examination
and hurried from the court to the federal grand jury room. This led to the
rumor that his full confession would
result in another batch of indictments.
He was not cross-examined because of
the peculiar situation created by his
sudden appearance as a government
witness. Two of the defence's lawyers
had previously appeared for Spitzer
when he was defendant and for ethical reasons could not now examine
him. The court ruled that they must
agree on some one to examine him on
Wednesday.
No Promise of Pardon.
No promise of pardon brought about
Spitzer's confession, say the federal
authorities. His conscience merely hurt
him, but realizing the importance of his
testimony and the legal obstacles likely
to bar it were he a convict action was
taken to restore him to citizenship.
When convicted last February Spitzer
declared the sugar trust had made him
the scapegoat. "It hounded and ruined
me after I had served faithfully for
twenty-nine years," he said then. Today he told how, for years, he had assisted in the alleged frauds.
